Summary
"What does this mean? Who are these people?" Questions like these are often asked by visitors to museums. Today, it is often easier to understand abstract art than it is to understand the meaning of an altarpiece that portrays a seminaked young man shot with arrows; a monk with an ax in his head; a beautiful girl with a wheel in her hand; or another who carries her eyes on a plate. From Agatha to Zeno, this book presents the images and attributes of more than one hundred saints, those most frequently encountered in sacred art, history and legend, tradition and devotional literature. Lavishly illustrated, this book introduces the saints with their identifying attributes, notes on their lives and martyrdoms, and visual references that make it easy to identify their characters and legends and the forms of worship for each
